Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages in Norfolk

Dog friendly and dogs welcome holiday cottages in NorfolkDog friendly holidays and short breaks in Norfolk

Your dog deserves a holiday as well, so why not book or holiday or short break in beautiful Norfolk? You can then spend some wonderful times together. See holiday cottages that welcome dogs

It is well known that most dogs get lonely and many pine when left in kennels. Dogs often suffer from 'separation anxiety' even when left for quite a short time. Sadly, we cannot explain what is happening to them when we leave them in kennels and 'See you next week' has no meaning to your dog.

Days out with your dog in Norfolk

All dogs love a good day out and North Norfolk offers plenty of opportunities for you to take your four legged friend out for a lovely waggy time. See holiday cottages that welcome dogs

The Norfolk Coast Path & Peddars Way

Whether this constitutes a real 'day out' might be debatable, but it's still worth mentioning these wonderful walks along the coast, simply because they make such a great destination for dog walkers. There are a number of paths, from shorter walks up to much longer treks: more than enough for even the fittest dog!

Take a Seal trip Dogs are made more than welcome on the seal trip boats that head out to the Blakeney Point area, and this is a must visit day out for you too: especially in November and December, when the seal pups are around.

Take in a show Though they're only on at certain points throughout the year, Norfolk hosts a number of shows that are perfect for dogs, including the Sandringham Game & Country Fair, Holkham Country Fair and the Deepdale Outdoor & Wildlife Festival.

Dogs love nothing more than a good long walk with plenty of space to run around like a lunatic! Norfolk is a brilliantly beautiful county for dog walking, with a host of different sites absolutely ideal for encouraging your four-legged friend to stretch their legs:

Dog Walking in Norfolk

Sandringham Country Park The Royal Sandringham Estate is one of the best dog walking sites in Norfolk with miles of wooded walks, attractive picnic areas, cafes, ponds… all ideal for a dog with energy to burn! Make a day of it and eat in a cafe or take a picnic lunch. Don't forget some water for Fido.

Mundesley Beach Another one of Norfolk's most attractive and enjoyable beaches, Mundesley is a mass of space (when the tide is out, obviously) that's perfect for dogs to run on. If you head there in the off season you'll often find you've got the place to yourself! There are some date restrictions in place, mainly in the summer holidays so best to check before you go.

Holkham Beach This is one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the world and the location was used at the end of the film 'Shakespeare in Love', Holkham Beach is a must visit for you and your dog. A beautiful expanse of white sand, fringed with sand dunes and pine woods, Holkham might well be the ultimate destination for dog walkers.

Sea Palling Beach Another lovely beach that's great for dog walks, with long stretches of golden sand and a number of grassy banks. There's so much space at Sea Palling Beach, so whether you're planning a quick 15-minute breeze around the area or a full three-mile trek, your dog will have absolutely everything they need to burn off all their surplus energy.

Old Hunstanton Beach A massive beach ideal for dog walking and running. Masses of parking available, and empty swathes of sand if you want to get away from it all.  If you only want to walk a tiny little way but also have some space around you, then this is perfect for you too.
